I think if you were looking to present an aggressive looking stance it was job well done :-)

Looks good. :thumbup: Does your car have active steering? The left rear wheel seems to be at an angle.

Great job. Looks a lot more aggressive.

I love your attention to detail with the information in your post and in your detailed pics and comparison photos :thumbup:.

BMW rear wheels always seem to have that negative camber. It supposedly helps with traction. I know mine are to far out as the inside of my rear tires are wearing after I put my spacers on :(. Alignment time for me.

Unfortunately, thatís the best picture I have at this time and itís not a great picture. When you see it in person, the left side is not any further out (or tilted) than the right side.

I will have to keep an eye on this as well.
